Fund objective
The aim of the Fund is to provide income with the potential to grow the amount you invested. The Fund invests at least two-thirds of its assets in bonds (which are similar to a loan and pay a fixed or variable interest rate) issued by companies worldwide, Money Market Instruments and cash. The Fund will invest mainly in bonds rated at least “BBB-” or “Baa3” by their respective credit rating agency (e.g. S&P or Moody’s) at the time they are purchased. Such bonds are considered safer than lower rated bonds but pay a lower income. The Fund invests directly in these assets or by using derivatives. Derivatives are sophisticated investment instruments linked to the rise and fall of the price of other assets. Derivatives will be used to obtain, increase or reduce exposure to underlying assets and may create gearing. Where gearing is created, the net asset value of the Fund may experience more fluctuation than if there were no gearing. Where the Fund invests in bonds that are not priced in US Dollars, the Fund may take measures that aim to mitigate the risk of currency movements against the US Dollar. The Fund may also invest in asset classes and instruments different from those stated above.
